Course Summary:

This course provides guidance for the safe design and economical construction of retaining and floodwalls. This manual is intended primarily for retaining walls which will be subjected to hydraulic loadings such as flowing water, submergence, wave action, and spray, exposure to chemically contaminated atmosphere, and/or severe climatic conditions. For the design of retaining walls which will not be subjected to hydraulic loadings or severe environmental conditions as described above, TM 5-818-1 may be used for computing the loadings and evaluating the stability of the structure.

Learning Objective:

  • INTRODUCTION
  • GENERAL DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
  • FORCES ON WALLS
  • STRUCTURE STABILITY
  • FOUNDATION ANALYSES
  • DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION DETAILS AND CAUSES OF UNSATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE
  • SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR FLOOD WALLS
  • CONCRETE GRAVITY WALLS
  • CANTILEVER REINFORCED CONCRETE WALLS
  • ALTERNATE TYPES OF RETAINING WALLS

Review the quiz before studying the course.
